Waited long time to see. Your eyes are dry was not very informative. Learned more in a 30 second restasis commercial than with an appointment with Dr. Harris. I think a doctor should tell you what's going on, and describe a treatment plan to the patient. Spend more time writing in chart than talking to patient. Not pleased with experience, hope it's better next time. I still have no idea of the severity of my eye problem.
